Where's the Ping?

Not able to find the Ping Services settings in the Admin section.

In the _navsettings.html, the pingservices line is commented out. I've uncommented it, and nothing. As far as I can tell, it's enabled in the settings XML file.

I've manually gone to the page by changing the URL (#/settings/pingservices), but there are no services listed, even though its XML has a list of them. Also, when I click on Add, I get the modal semi-transparent background, but no popup.

Pings and trackbacks can be enabled/disabled from admin -> settings -> comments.

Add/remove item is missing in 2.9, along with edit blogroll and few others. They will be added back in 3.0. You'll need modify XML file directly in app_data for now.

Thanks. I do see the Send and Receive which are both checked (which corresponds with the settings file as mentioned above).

Does this mean that it will still ping the services that are in the Ping XML?

Again, thanks a lot.

Yes, it will ping and you can modify entries by hand if needed.
